I Can Tell the World

2009 NR

The spiritual -- the wellspring of such genres as jazz, blues and hip-hop -- is celebrated in this uplifting documentary that follows the interracial Spirituals Project Choir as it seeks to breathe new life into the original American form of music. Members of the group delve into the history and meaning of works such as "Swing Low, Sweet Chariot" and "Go Down, Moses," while performance clips attest to the songs' contemporary relevance.
